So, today, I want to share with you the beginning of my poncho…

Let’s take a look at the yarn first…well, do you remember the yarn I showed you in this post ?

Yes, it is the new Nako: the superlambs special a 50%acrylic, 50% wool that I’ll be using for my poncho.

There is 12 colors… deep colors that reminds you the autumn …

and I’ve totally fallen in love with these colors…they are my colors of the moment 😀 hehe

and now, let’s take a peek to the first 4 rounds of the poncho…

I’m crocheting the poncho with a 4.5mm crochet hook. I’ve started it with a chain of 88ch…yes, my head is a little big 😉

Don’t forget: Your beginning chain must be a multiple of 8 and big enough to enter through the head!

I’m very pleased with the first 4 rounds of my poncho 🙂 and I am sooo thrilled about it…when I’m doing things around the house I keep thinking about the moment I will grab my hook and add some rounds 🙂

Spoil yourself with a poncho!

By | March 19th, 2012|poncho, Sucrette's granny poncho cal, Uncategorized|68 Comments

Good morning sweet people,

As you already guessed from the title of this post, the new cal (crochet-a-long) will be a poncho 🙂 Yes, an adult granny poncho.

As we always crochet for the others, making blankets for all the members of the family and crocheted gifts for our friends, this project is totally selfish. For spring and autumn, a poncho is something special to wear…it makes you warm and happy for no reason 🙂

So, my sweeties, what do you think? Are you in? Are you totally thrilled by this project like myself? I think it will be awesome if once the ponchos are made, to set a particular day so we can all wear our ponchos 🙂 A “poncho day” for you sweet ladies around the world ! I just love this idea 😀

Let’s set up now some rules, shall we? 😉

Rule1: Crochet a granny poncho for yourself. And if it is not your kind of clothing to wear, crochet a poncho for your child, your daughter, your mother or as a gift for a special friend.

Rule2: No date limit to finish the poncho. You can begin it and finish it whenever you want 🙂

Rule3: No special colors to use. It can be very colorful (like mine 😉 ) or crocheted with just one color or two…It is up to you!

Rule4: No special yarn to use also… You can crochet it with acrylic, wool, cotton or whatever you like.

Rule5: Pattern: HERE! It is a granny pattern, very simple and easy to follow. It is a graphic pattern but I tried, yesterday evening to add a small paragraph to it, to explain it with written directions… If you have any problem starting the poncho, don’t hesitate to tell and I will help you. This pattern is totally addictive, you’ll see 😉

If you want to see some crocheted ponchos with this pattern, go here!

So, these were the rules. Are you joining in this fun project? Come one! Let’s spoil ourselves with a poncho! Let it be a selfish project and we will all encourage one another in creating this “happy piece of clothing” to wear on the grayest days 🙂

If you want to join, leave me a comment on this post or here in this flickr discussion or here in this ravelry discussion and tell me if it will be for you or for somebody else and what yarn you’ll be using. Don’t forget to post your blog address if you have one!

I created also a flickr group and a ravelry one so we can all share our pics and progress…

I am sooo happy already 🙂 Come on! Join in! It will be so much fun!

I’m waiting for youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

Have a bright and colorful week!


P.S: – I’ll post next time, the beginning of my poncho 🙂

Yara’s poncho!

By | February 2nd, 2011|poncho, Uncategorized|22 Comments


I’ve been working on this custom-made poncho during this we and I made the last final row yesterday! It is for a 6 months old princess called Yara 🙂

I know it is not my kind of colors choice but it turned out beautiful and I am very happy with the result 🙂

The colors are so soft and I stitched a 3d crocheted flower on it…

If your interested in making one you can find the very-easy-pattern here 🙂

Hope you like it! I am sure it will be wonderful on little Yara 😉

Have a perfect Wednesday!

Hello my friend,

I’ve finished today the baby poncho for my niece Clara who’s six months old…and I’ll put here in this post the pattern if someone is interested in crocheting one…It is sooo simple to make and so cute for the children:) It really makes a great gift 🙂

I’ve already made 3 ponchos…2 in march and 1 now…

The 2 I made in March were bigger (for my own girls: 3 and 5 years old)…

Here they are:

and the last one is for a baby:

For the pattern:

All you have to make is a chain big enough to enter through baby’s head and a multiple of 8: (It is very important that the chain is a multiple of 8!! For the baby I made a chain of 72)

and after that you follow this graphic pattern:

and you continue this way until you crochet the length you desire…

You’ll see, it is very easy and quick!

P.S: This below part was added on march 2012:

I want to try here to explain a little the pattern with written instructions. I’ll use the U.K terms. Remember a tr in U.K terms means a dc in U.S terms and a bride in french terms.

To begin your poncho: make a chain multiple of 8 and big enough to enter the head. close it with a slip stitch.

Round 1: 1 tr, 1tr, 1tr, 1 ch, 1tr, 1tr, 1tr, 1ch on every stitch of the beginning chain.

Round 2: Count your clusters of trebles. If there is 16 like in the graphic above you should make now: “3tr, 1ch, 3tr” on the first ch between the clusters of trebles of round1, then “3tr, 1ch” on the next 7 ones, then “3tr, 1ch, 3tr” on the 9th one then “3tr, 1ch” on the next 7 ones again…

In fact, you should fold your round1 in two. and make two groups of “3tr, 1ch, 3tr” on each part of your round1…

Don’t know if I’m making myself clear, please take a look at the graph to know exactly where to make your two groups of “3tr, 1ch, 3tr”

Round3: make “3tr, 1ch, 3tr” on the chain between the two clusters of 3tr then continue making “3tr, 1ch” on each other ch of round2, then again “3tr, 1ch, 3tr”on the second chain between the two clusters of 3tr , then again “3tr, 1ch” on each other ch of round2…

etc etc

For all the other rounds, you should work the same….

When to stop? when you’ll have the lenght you desire for your poncho 🙂

I hope I made it a little clear with these written instructions…

In march 2014, I’ve made two more ponchos for my girls who are now 8 and 6 years old… You can see them in that post right here 🙂


Happy crocheting to you all!
